It is Sunday today, which means I have to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Most of the articles this week deal with the iPhone 6s, new Apple TV set-top box and the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9-iOS 9.0.2. There are also several posts that tell us about Apple’s iPhone, iPad and Mac sales as well as about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that is expected to hit the store shelves in November.
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple will start selling the long-awaited 12.9-inch iPad Pro on Wednesday, November 11th. The larger-screen tablet should become available both in retail and online stores at the same time. Earlier it was reported that the iPad Pro will become available for purchase sometime in November.
Apple on Tuesday announced its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Apart from record-breaking iPhone and Mac sales and incredible revenue, the company also reported about the number of iPads sold over the last couple of months. According to the official figures shared by the company, the number of iPads sold to customers worldwide in the fourth quarter is equal to 9.8 million units. Unfortunately for Apple, this figure demonstrates a 20% year-over-year decline in global sales. Even though Apple continues to be one of the leaders of the tablet market, looks like nothing can stop it from stagnation.
The analyst Benedict Evans has recently shared a chart showing how iPad sales declined since the debut of the original first-gen iPad back in 2010.

One of Apple’s numerous market rivals, HTC, has just announced its new flagship device called the HTC One A9. The most interesting thing about this device, especially for Apple fans and iPhone users, is the way it looks. As can be seen below, the smartphone is incredibly similar to the iPhone 6s.
Apple has recently removed more than 250 iOS applications from the App Store. The reason for such a radical step is a third-party advertising SDK called Youmi, which is prohibited by the App Store guidelines. When used in iOS applications, it allows to collect sensitive information, for example, Apple ID email addresses and device serial numbers and in such a way to violate user privacy. The issue has been discovered by a research firm called SourceDNA and immediately reported to Apple. The company has also provided Apple with a full list of apps using malicious ad SDK.

A couple of days ago, Apple released iOS 9 to users worldwide. The update turned out to be quite unstable and many users reported various issues connected with it. As can be seen on Apple Support Communities, the most popular was the one causing iPhones and iPads to freeze on the ‘Slide to Upgrade’ screen. To resolve this issue and a fix a number of other bugs causing constant app crashes and lags, Apple on Wednesday released iOS 9.0.1 with numerous changes. The most-recent version is aimed at improving the stability and performance of iOS as well as at fixing the most common problems.
Several new images showing the retail packagings of all iPhone 6s models and a rose gold device have recently appeared on the Internet. The images have been first spotted on a Spanish website called iPhoneros.

Alongside iOS 9 release to public on Wednesday, September 16th, Apple also started seeding iTunes 12.3 with support of OS X 10.11 El Capitan and the most-relent build of iOS.
